Anuga, the largest fair in the world dedicated to the Food & Beverage sector, is the biennial event that manufacturers and operators in the sector cannot miss. The numbers of the last edition, held in October 2017, speak for themselves: 7,405 exhibitors and about 165,000 visitors from all over the world! Those who have never participated have missed out on the most important global trends and industry trends.
This year will be a special year for Anuga: the largest fair in the world for food & beverage celebrates its 100th anniversary: an extraordinary message of constant support from the sector and certainly an excellent example of the positive development of a fair in food sector.The first edition of Anuga took place in Stuttgart in 1919.
It was a small-scale exhibition, in which about 200 companies, exclusively German, took part.
The first time of Anuga in Cologne, in 1924, the number of exhibitors had already grown to 360. With around 40,000 visitors this Anuga was the best edition since its inception. Even then, the offer was divided into eight segments: food and consumer goods, cooking equipment, machines for the production of food products, packaging and packaging machines, loading devices, handling technology, chemical and cosmetic preparations and advertising items.
In 1951, over 1,200 exhibitors from 34 countries participated, making Anuga the leading international business platform for the food industry. Over time, the exhibition transformed from a platform dedicated to food and processing into a trade fair specializing in food & beverage. With its 7,405 exhibitors and approximately 165,000 specialized visitors, Anuga is today the reference event of the international food & beverage industry and tells the success story of all the participants.
Anuga is synonymous with variety and internationality. The consolidated concept of “10 specialized salons under one roof”, originally proposed by Anuga, guarantees top buyers from all over the world a more transparent division and ease of visit. Every single specialized salon is unique and sometimes even a leader in the segment to which it belongs. This particular mix of market leaders and small and medium-sized companies makes Anuga the most international and varied fair in the world
